Why was now the time to release your first “solo” record?

I wanted to get back on the road. I wanted to get back to work. I didn’t have a band of my own anymore; both Blues Explosion and Heavy Trash had kind of run their course. I was working with Boss Hog, and we made what I think was a really great record; the album Brood X, which came out a couple of years ago. And we did some touring, but I missed having a band of my own. Rather than search around for players and put something together and start practicing, I thought I’d make the record first and then start playing.

So, yeah, I wanted to get back to work. And it’s not like this is a huge shift. The reason I used my name is because it was a shortcut; the quickest and easiest way to tell people what to expect when they put the needle to the record.
